Buffalo cracks down on dangerous driving

Posted at 1:13 PM, Aug 03, 2017

The City of Buffalo is looking to slow down traffic in high speed areas.

Buffalo Police and the Department of Public Works has a new "traffic calming" program in the North Council District.

A portable electronic speed read-out sign is now in place on Amherst Street and other streets in the area in an effort to slow motorists down along a corridor city leaders say it known for chronic speeding.

The city did an analysis of residential complaints to Mayor Brown's 311 Call and Resolution Line to determine the locations.

The new traffic program also includes increased enforcement of traffic laws by police in targeted neighborhoods.

In total, the City has ordered six speed read-out signs and 10 temporary speed humps.
